Performance is happening.

Be part of the art! Join artist Maria Hupfield as she activates her artwork, Electric Prop and Hum Freestyle Variations, in a live performance with Ange Loft.

On view in Àbadakone | Continuous Fire | Feu continuel, Electric Prop and Hum Freestyle Variations is an installation that incorporates hand-made sculptural components with complementary video.

The series of collaborative performances from which this installation springs is conceptually and formally expansive. Hupfield’s considered use of everyday objects, movement, sounds and vocalizations provide multiple inclusive entry points for both encounter and interpretation.

In English with bilingual question period.

Included with admission to the Gallery.

Audience members at this event will be filmed and photographed. The film footage will be used by the artist to create a video for public display that will be integrated into the artist’s installation that is currently on view at the Gallery. The film footage may also be used and displayed elsewhere by the artist in future installations and performances.  Photographs taken during the event will be used for the Gallery’s Àbadakone exhibition catalogue. Please note that audience members will be required to sign a consent and release form in order to enter the Àbadakone exhibition to enjoy the performance. Forms will be provided at the Gallery on the day of the performance, just prior to its commencement.

Space at this event is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 11:45 am. The performance will also be live-streamed in the Gallery’s Scotiabank Great Hall.
